Our rigorous pre-flight process checks files for errors and or inefficiencies in order to make sure everything is perfect before sending it off to print. Preparation for printing is unique to each project, but the items on every checklist include color mode (CMYK for print), resolution (usually 300dpi or higher), fonts (either outlined or embedded) and clean, properly linked or embedded, vector-based images that can be scaled without any loss of resolution.
For your convenience, our pre-press services also include:
Secure cloud based file sharing
Upload your design files via FTP to our secure server or to your own Google Drive or Dropbox, if you prefer.
XM online proofing
Proof twice, print once. After our in-house proofing process is complete, we will send you a digital proof to review before we go to press. And of course, hard copy proofs are also available.
Custom color profiles
We are a G7 Master Qualified Facility, so we are able to create custom color profiles that ensure accurate and predictable color and gray values that remain consistent across devices and materials.
